“The landscape has changed significantly since 2005,” said Michael Wray, President of Mariner Software. “Dan and Mariner have enjoyed a fantastic working relationship over the years but both our focus has changed. Mariner’s attention is on other products in our line and Dan would prefer to keep MacJournal under the Dan Schimpf Software brand. In the end it’s really a win-win for the product.”

A new update will be out soon for all existing customers.” Mariner will shift MacJournal support and customer service to Dan Schimpf Software effective March 1, 2019.
